Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Amendment (Ensuring Integrity No. 2) Bill 2019; Second Reading
Yes; procedurally, the Leader of the House can move 'that the question be put' at any time during the moving of the amendment, at any time during the seconding of the amendment—in fact at any time after the seconding of the amendment prior to my then stating, 'The question is that the amendment be agreed to.' Up until that point he can put that motion, and that has been the case on a number of occasions, so I'm happy to clarify that. What I will now do is put the question that is before me as moved by the Leader of the House. The question is that the question be put.
